This is for all you biased Jets fans

To Winnipeg:
Kadri, Tavares, Matthews, Marner, Nylander, Reilly, Anderson

To Toronto:

Is that enough for ya?


1.) 15 Jun 2019 22:06:26
Toronto needs to add a couple firsts as well, Trouba is better than Orr after all, one 50 point year and he’s the greatest defensemen to ever lace em up.

2.) 15 Jun 2019 22:51:54
Ya your right i knew the leafs weren't giving up enough. We might have to add Dermott, Johnsson, and Kapanen as well.

3.) 15 Jun 2019 23:30:07
Boy some of the Leaf posters want Trouba so badly that they throw a tantrum because the Jets supporters don't think their desperate trade offers are good enough. How about Copp, Lowry and Nogier for Rielly? The Leafs get grittier. hahahaha Grow up.

4.) 16 Jun 2019 01:36:33
As was said many times before, the Leafs need Trouba far, far more than the Jets need anything from the Leafs. The Leafs simply don't have anything valuable enough that they are willing to trade that will get a young #1RHD. Sorry it hurts your feelings so much.

5.) 16 Jun 2019 05:25:18
Are you both really saying that this still isn’t enough? I’m just not going to take anything seriously that you say anymore.

6.) 16 Jun 2019 18:42:39
Who's the #1RHD your talking about memarcusjoe? Bccuz Jacob Trouba is a Right handed top 4 D with top 2 potential. He's definitely not top 2 atm and even less top 1.



19 Dec 2018 15:06:13
To St. Louis:
Zaitsev, Johnsson, 2019 1st, Rasanen, 2019 3rd
To Leafs:

St. Louis gets young speed and talent in Johnsson, a quality prospect in Rasanen, and a pick in the first and third round

And hey, you never know, maybe if Zaitsev gets traded he'll start playing well, I mean that's what usually happens to the leafs when they make a trade


1.) 19 Dec 2018 16:13:46
There isn't one piece in that offer that would even get the Blues to consider this trade at all.

2.) 19 Dec 2018 16:18:38
I think if your going to aquire Peitrangelo, one of Lilegren or Sandin will be headed to STL.

3.) 19 Dec 2018 18:28:19
In my opinion if petro or parayko go. Liljgren (rhd) would be coming back. If you want blues to take zaitsev for his cap hit a 1st is coming back. Also with both parayko or petro nylander or kappy have to be main pieces.

Johnson a 24 year old 30 point projected player doesn't move the dial.

Start with nylander++ or kappy++++.

4.) 19 Dec 2018 21:35:01
Good points, but what your also forgetting is Pietrangelo is out indefinitely with an injury, which is bound to lower his trade value, especially if he isn’t back closer to the deadline and the Blues keep losing.

5.) 19 Dec 2018 22:39:40
I don't think that Petro will be as much as Parayko. He only has 1 year left before UFA. Maybe Kappy ++ for him. Doubt it would happen though as Dubas said he was looking for someone with term. He is making 6.5 now and not sure what he would want on his next deal.

6.) 19 Dec 2018 22:40:34
Lol. Kappy++++. You want five pieces?! Lmao
And if Zietsev is one then the 1st has to come and one of Liljgren or Sandin have to be in.

So you think Parayko is worth Kapanen, Liljgren, 20191st, Ziatsev + one more piece? Funny. You'll be way off again like you were Shattenkirk.
I'd give 4 pieces one being a Zietsev comparable,
Yamamoto, Bear or Jones, 2019 1st and Russell for Parayko. That's 3 really good pieces and a still serviceable solid D man.
Not going to lie, there's big rumors floating around Parayko to Edm right now. Chiarelli and Armstrong were seen together for a legnthy time yesterday morning at Rogers arena in Edm, Blues played Oilers in Edm last night.

7.) 20 Dec 2018 00:31:33
Thats pretty bad of an offer for Petro, its nor rasanen its at least sandin, but the, i don't think its too bad.

But colt, you aren't getting nylander, liljegren, sandin and a 1st and zaitsev for a two year UFA. he gets more than McD, but NOT that much more: maybe an extra 1st or so?

8.) 20 Dec 2018 10:52:07
I think it’d be Nylander for Petro + leafs stated they wouldn’t make that trade and he’s much younger and cost controlled once he starts have 90 + point seasons.

9.) 20 Dec 2018 17:33:24
Here is what I would be ok with.

Kappy liljgren 1st 2019 zaitsev
Petro maroon (If wanted)

I think that's a strong starting point.

No other combination works.

Kappy- best available rightwing with size speed scoring touch. (Unless nylander is available)

Liljgren - best available rhd prospect with top4 potential.

Zaitsev- cap dump

1st 2019 - compensation for cap dump and petro value.

10.) 21 Dec 2018 00:50:15
I’m not sure what the price would be, or what’s fair. Like it’s been said, petro is hurt and hasn’t played in a while. So it would be a risk to give up a lot and hope he’s in prime shape by playoffs. Just not worth it for an exuberant price. Parayko is obviously a different case with 5 year term. Either way, it won’t be as bad of a return for St. Louis as some of the proposals on here and will probably be underwhelming to Colt after seeing what he’s expecting, if either get traded at all.

11.) 21 Dec 2018 03:13:57
Lmfao Nylander for Petro +.

12.) 21 Dec 2018 10:11:04
Yes nylander for petro+ is a joke. Fyi nylander doesn't look great right now. As for petro he has missed like 4 5 games to a hand injury it's not like it's his hip, knees, shoulders etc he took a puck off his hand.

13.) 21 Dec 2018 23:28:45
well regardless of what we think, i doubt anything happens between TOR/ STL, dubas wasnt willing to part with Willy alone for Petro, don't think he'd want to add at all to Willy in that case. In contrast, who knows if Armstrong would even offer Petro for Nylander.

14.) 25 Dec 2018 02:40:11
Willy is going to be cost controlled once he starts hitting 90 points? That may be a stretch to ever see Willy over 90. Not unless he gets 65 assists (which may be possible playing with Matthews and Tavares)



17 Dec 2018 16:26:52
To St. Louis:
Brown, 4th, 7th
To Leafs:
Sanford, 6th

Basically this trade is made by Toronto to clear cap space.

Both guys have the same amount of points and are the same age, but Brown has played more games, so the leafs give up a 4th and a 7th while the 6th from St. Louis is to balance the trade.

I think St. Louis would be ok with this because of the scrap Sanford and Bortuzzo just had. They just locked up Bortuzzo for 3 more years and Sanford just doesn't seem to like it there, I think there is a move coming, and this could be it.

Sanford could also be a cheap LW to play with Matthews or Tavares in the near future, which would also help the leafs current cap situation.


1.) 17 Dec 2018 17:33:03
I doubt Brown is the guy Leafs target if they need to make a trade to clear up cap space.

2.) 17 Dec 2018 18:23:19
Well who else then?
Hyman? -No, he is on a great contract
Kadri? -No, again great contract
Gardiner? -Very Unlikely, he will walk
Hainsey? -Unlikely, he will walk
Marleau? -Unlikely with his NMC
Zaitsev? -I wish, but what team would take him unless the leafs overcompensate?
And the leafs aren’t trading Kapanen or Johnsson this year, they will go all-in and they won’t use them as trade bait to do it

With all their depth, Brown is expendable. He can be replaced by young cheap guys like Bracco, Moore, Grundstrom, Marchement, or possibly even Engvall.

3.) 17 Dec 2018 19:09:40
Well if you're going to trade somebody to free up cap space you would probably want to trade a guy who eats up a lot of it. Brown at $2.1 mln next year for a guy who can play up and down the lineup and kill penalties is not where I would start. You're going to trade him to add Sanford to save, what, maybe a million next year? That doesn't really move the needle. You also state that Hyman is on a "great contract" and thereby he won't be traded; not sure how that argument does not apply to Brown as he has nearly identical career numbers and will make a little less than Hyman is due next year.

As for who would be a better candidate to trade to free up space next year, Marleau is an interesting possibility, given his contract structure. He's set to make only a million in actual salary after he collects his bonus this summer yet carries a $6.25 mln cap hit; as several have speculated already that may have been premeditated to allow him to voluntarily hang 'em up and only walk away from a million. Or he could be willing to waive his NMC if traded to a team of his liking.

Nylander is another obvious candidate, given his sizable cap hit, the emergence of Kapanen and the Leafs need to add some quality players on the blue line.

This is all assuming the Leafs are in such a cap bind that they will need to trade someone, which is not yet necessarily the case with the cap increasing materially (will ultimately depend on what Marner and Matthews sign for which remains to be seen) .

My 2c.

4.) 17 Dec 2018 19:37:28
Yeah i don't see the blues taking on more cap if indeed a rebuild is coming. I don't see the blues trading sanford for a guy who has played 10 more games and has same amount of points and makes 1.3 million more. LOL you are delusional. Good luck with that line of thinking.

If the blues are rebuilding (big if) . wouldn't it make sense to cut cap. Trade out veterans bring in young talent and high value draft picks. Not trade foe a lesser player with higher cap hip for a 4th and 6th. Sorry that's just bad. Just like trying to say zaitsev is a serviceable player at 4.5 million.

5.) 19 Dec 2018 00:26:40
You keep saying that but rebuilding teams take on players with term left all the time. Guys to play while they develop their next core. That’s the essence of a rebuild and has been for the entire salary cap era. You would think a guy who acts like he’s the real GM of the team would have recognized that trend over the last 15 seasons, no?!



10 Dec 2018 18:39:43
To St.Louis:
Nylander, Liljgren, Marincin
To Leafs:
Kyrou, Parayko, Bouwmeester

Now that is a fair trade.
The salaries make it tricky though so St. Louis adds Bouwmeester as a cap dump and the leafs place him on waivers while sending back marincin as a cheap replacement for St. Louis


1.) 10 Dec 2018 19:06:56
In my opinion:
And then the other two aren’t as relevant to the deal. St Louis is in the midst of a change up/ start of a rebuild. There’s no need for them to trade young assets. Especially when the main piece coming back is a winger, since their best player is a winger already and that’s not the position you typically build around.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 19:33:29
you want fair value then here it is.

Parayko Kostin

Nylnader, Liljgren sandin.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 19:40:22
themostleaf33-- I thought we agreed that we were not going to bring up your stupid trade offers anymore because parayko, by consensus of the board and by mmost logical people, Cost more than your willing to pay. Do us all a favor find another dman to sell short and under pay for.

4.) 10 Dec 2018 20:49:08
Still don't get the high opinion on Parayko. Watched many a game he has played and he is what he is. A 30-40 point dman. Pretty good defensively but makes a few bone headed moves. He gets his high minutes because of an injury to there best dman and because the bottom pairing is weak. I see him as a good top 4 guy. Just my opinion though. I am not convinced Parayko is available, but should he be traded no way does he get what Colt suggests. Again this is just my opinion.

5.) 10 Dec 2018 21:12:42
Doncherry, I agree. If I’m St. Louis they believe he’s good enough to let pietrangelo go though, I’m on board! Lol I’ll take Petro over parayko anyday.

6.) 10 Dec 2018 22:42:30
Ok, I understand why you may undervalue Nylander, but not Liljgren.
However, the reason Nylander is worth so much is because of his potential, he will be more then just a 60 point player, and a future 30 goal scorer
Parayko has basically reached his potential by this point.

7.) 11 Dec 2018 00:15:57
Colt, to be honest what I see as fair is:

Parayko and Kostin for Nylander, Liljegren and 2nd.

Sandins too much buddy. Liljegren is better than Kostin as a prospect, and the 2nd adds sweetner. What your suggesting is Parayko for Nylander and Liljegren because Kostin and Sandin are equal imo (hell, imo, sandins outplaying kostin pretty far), so that's a no dice.

8.) 11 Dec 2018 02:35:37
Redwing what if you dropped Kostin and Sandin and added Bracco/ Joseph Woll and 2nd from the leafs side?

9.) 11 Dec 2018 03:51:28
Bravo suck. In all honesty any trade for petro or parayko will be over payment. You are gutting the blues defense.

10.) 11 Dec 2018 07:16:48
Thermo are we going to ignore the fact that you said Matthews was going to be out 4-5 months?

11.) 11 Dec 2018 13:53:37
Ya, I was just repeating a rumour I heard so whatever.



08 Nov 2018 21:20:57
So there are reports of Sprong (Pittsburgh) being on the trade block, and with Schultz out long term (and Jack Johnsson rubbishing the bed so far) the Pens could want to acquire a defenceman.

To Penguins:
To SJ:

1 for 1, a simple trade, obviously if this was more realistic "balance picks" would be involved.

10 Jun 2019 18:23:05
This is just to piss everyone off

Nylander for Parayko


1.) 10 Jun 2019 20:43:41
Value won't be bad by the end of next season.

2.) 11 Jun 2019 00:22:59
Hilarious. It would take a pretty nice add to Nylander to get close.

3.) 12 Jun 2019 21:39:18
I think blues just keep parayko and petro on the right side and with Jaybo's re-emergence and dunns spectacular play, just look to bring in new young LHD and RHD to come in and eas into the 3d role.

4.) 13 Jun 2019 04:10:09
Yup, huge add by Toronto. Nylander has minus value at his contract. It's like Seabrook 10 years younger. Toronto made a big mistake and paid him like he's annual 80-90 point guy when he's never come close. Parayko is legit top 30 defense in the league.

5.) 13 Jun 2019 14:48:55
Lol a annual 80-90 point guy makes over 10 million per season. Skinner makes 9million and Skinners career high is 2 more points then Nylander. Nylander will bounce back and his 7 million contract will look like a steal.

6.) 14 Jun 2019 18:36:15
Huh? Skinner just had 40 goals and nylander had 7, yes short year cause was greedy but full season still equates to 13 or so? Skinner was youngest ever Calder winner. First 4 years outscoring nylander 97 to 50 something. And one of sinners first 4 years was lockout so played less games then nylander holding out last year so that's no excuse. Easily have skinner at 9 than nylander at 7.



04 Jan 2019 22:51:44
If I were the Bluejackets GM, I would stop focusing on re-signing Panarin and I would go out and get some pending UFA's. This would allow them to have the opportunity to re-sign some other players to fill the gap that Panarin would leave.

Bjorkstrand, Dubinsky, Milano, 2020 2nd, and maybe something else to compensate for Dubinsky's big contract
Hayes, Zuccarello



1.) 04 Jan 2019 23:42:18
If I couldn't get them signed before the deadline I'd just trade him and bobrovsky.

2.) 05 Jan 2019 03:54:17
Ya but the way I look at it is then they will need to re-tool anyway so they should just push for the cup this year and worry about the rest after, again they have the cap space they can re-sign Hayes and Zuccarello if Panarin leaves to make up for the lost scoring. This would also make the NYR less appealing to Panarin since 2 of their top players would leave.

3.) 05 Jan 2019 05:01:05
Columbus has to feel like they are contenders. Whether or not they are re-signing Panarin or Bobrovsky, they should go balls to the walls and all in. They have lots of cap space to add some significant pieces, and they can ride these guys deep into the playoffs. That would really turn some heads in the league about just how serious this team is about winning. As it stands right now, there are a lot of very good players available in free agency this year. One of the best off seasons I can remember in a long time. Both Panarin and Bobrovsky have players of similar caliber in their position hitting the market. Hard to believe, but these guys actually are replaceable.



26 Nov 2018 18:21:54
With Hextall out of Philly which teams do you think will try to higher him?

Also, do you think any teams will try to trade for Wayne Simmonds (or other Flyers) now that Philly doesn't have a full-time GM


1.) 26 Nov 2018 18:34:11
I don't know if anyone will be eager to hire him. I think he's one of those guys who is probably a really goo assistant, but maybe it the main guy.
I think Simmonds needs to stay, I know the game has changed quite a bit, but the Flyers need to get back to Flyer hockey. rough and tough. and of course need a goalie.

2.) 26 Nov 2018 19:05:56
Maybe Hextall can go back in net now? Lol because he’s the last time they had a good one (well except when they had bob.

3.) 26 Nov 2018 20:50:39
Toronto should pickup Karl Alzner off waivers from Montreal. When Nikita Zaitsev comes off injury send him down. Karl Alzner would be a got pairing with Ron Hainsey.

4.) 26 Nov 2018 21:51:35
And I would give leafs 2019 1st rounder and a decent prospect to add Simmonds for a run knowing he was going to walk and chase money elsewhere.

Kapanen Matthews Nylander
Hyman Tavares Marner
Marleau Kadri Simmonds
Johnsson Lindholm Brown.

This adds that grit and bit of toughness we lack while still being a very capable offensive group too.

5.) 27 Nov 2018 02:38:17
If Philly is in any position to make playoffs, you can be sure Simmonds will remain on the team.

6.) 27 Nov 2018 04:24:22
I’d give a 1st and a prospect for Simmonds as well Jim. If the leafs don’t add some grit to the line up, that’s when I’d be upset with Dubas. I agree with LeafsGM that if philly is in playoff contention that they will keep him.

7.) 27 Nov 2018 13:46:17
For sure they would keep him then. But if they aren’t in it, they could trade him to a team that has next to no chance of re-signing him like us, and hen bring him back in July if they want him around still.

8.) 27 Nov 2018 20:47:45
Would you rather have Simmonds or Hayes? My thinking is if we get Hayes, we can out Kadri LW, which is a little weaker than RW.

9.) 28 Nov 2018 01:07:08
I’d rather Simmonds over Hayes all day. He’s better, he’s tougher, we have centres so leave Kadri in the middle and it saves $1.25 mill cap space that leafs can use towards maybe a legit veteran depth Dman to help on a deep run.

10.) 28 Nov 2018 04:17:31
If Toronto could add Simmonds just for this year obviously and trade for a top 4 defenseman, then I would consider them contenders. Right now I think they are just a really good offensive team.



06 Nov 2018 00:46:03
Alright I think it's very obvious that Bobrovsky wants out of Columbus, what teams do you think are good fits?

Anyway, in my opinion if I were Carolina I would be trying to go after him rather then Nylander, it would make them instant cup contenders, and they have goalies to spare and give to Columbus so I don't dought it, especially if Nylander is re-signed by the leafs


1.) 06 Nov 2018 03:06:38
The Leafs.

2.) 06 Nov 2018 07:47:35
Goalie Bob has never been good in the playoffs. If he wants Price money I don’t think any team will pay him that!

3.) 06 Nov 2018 11:05:29
I don't even think Price is worth Price money. Price should be getting paidnot more then 8.5 million.

4.) 06 Nov 2018 15:10:47
This wasn't supposed to be a talk about Bobrovsky's future contract, it was supposed to be where you all think he fits, but whatever.

5.) 06 Nov 2018 16:40:45
At 8.5 mill he will be sitting with Nylander.

6.) 06 Nov 2018 21:22:00
Saint Louis for Jake Allen+++ Jake Allen is terrible but there team is a top 5 team with Bob.



31 Oct 2018 16:10:13
Let me just say once players start to return to the lineup, Anaheim is kind of screwed.

Healthy Lineup:



Forwards not included:
Ritchie, Rowney, Aberg, Gibbons, Blandisi, Ludestrom

Defence not included:
Larsson, Schenn

What do you think their plan is?


1.) 31 Oct 2018 16:19:57
Sweet! A post about Anaheim. How refreshing.
They do have a lot of injuries right now don't they. Will they have to put some of those guys on waivers when some return from injury probably? Aberg was a good bandaid waiver pick up by them. Ritchie just signed an extension and I think he has a spot for sure.
Wonder which guys can be sent down without waiver and which have to be put on waiver. Losing guys for nothing (on waivers) always sucks for teams depth. Always nice to just send them down. The difference between one way and two way contracts right there I think.

2.) 01 Nov 2018 15:43:16
I could see them demoting Street, Gibbons, Welinski, Rowney and Lundestrom.

Kase would be in their top 6 imo.

Perry's not going to be back for a while, and when he does, I think he gets third line minutes while Eaves drops to the fourth.

So basically, i'd see their lines as:
*Aberg, Blandisi


3.) 01 Nov 2018 20:35:56
Who is this Comtois? Never even heard of the guy. And he's a top 6 on the Ducks? Cool.

4.) 02 Nov 2018 01:00:11
Maxime Comtois . was on World Jr wasnt he?

5.) 02 Nov 2018 01:54:11
Comtois was like top 3 in rookie scoring before he got injured. Was projected to be like Landeskog when drafted. His stock has been rising like crazy since he was drafted.
Also Steel was sent to the Minors.

HAHAHA! Where is this years 1st round pick? You can't be serious. Marner is worth 4 1st round picks not 4 2nd round picks. And you also want the leafs to throw in their best forward prospect? Not a chance.

This post made my day sir. Milk came out of my nose. Thanks for making me laugh.

Ya your right i knew the leafs weren't giving up enough. We might have to add Dermott, Johnsson, and Kapanen as well.

15 Jun 2019 20:38:48
Brodin had an off year and I think Dubas would be hesitant to trade for him. Also the leafs don't need any more LHD. Nylander for Dumba is interesting but Dumba was hurt for a long time and I think Dubas would be hesitant on that too.

However, if there was a trade like Spurgeon for Kadri (with some adjustments) I might be a little more interested.
